Children are more likely to succeed in school when their parents are actively engaged in their education. Because of this, the state and federal government have increased their emphasis on quality family/school/community coordination.
As a coordinated effort of Instructional Services, Migrant, Special Education, Title I, Part A, and Title IV, the Education Service Center Region 15 is able to provide a resource to help Region 15 schools provide an avenue for communication with parents.
The "Parents Make a Difference" and "Parents Still Make A Difference" newsletters are available for reproduction for the months of September through May in English and Spanish. Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle School, and High School are the versions that you may choose from. You also receive a calendar of activities three times a year for each month.

In order to be able to provide access to the newsletters posted on our website, we are required by the license to have a password.
